Characteristics of proteins from normal, high lysine, and high tannin sorghums uri icon

abstract

  • The purpose of this paper was to study the characterirtics of proteins from normal, high lysine, and high tannin Sorghum bicolor (I,.) Moench. Endosperm preparations were otltained from four inbred lines of sorghum representing a normal, low tannin variety (P-721-N), its mutagenically derived high lysine counterpart (P-721-O), an inbred Ethiopian variety high in lysine (IS-11167), and a high tannin line (IS-4225). Endosperm proteins were separated into five soluble fractions by the Landry Moureauxmethod?
